Nifty Fifty in Cork
Lens: A 50mm f/1.7 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Cork, Ireland 
Posted By: rparmar, 06-20-2010, 07:29 PM

As documented in the nifty fifty thread, a Pentax A 50mm 1.7 lens is making its way around the world, and where it stops a Pentaxian takes pictures with it.

RobbieC got the lens first in Ireland, direct from the Azores. I went down to meet himself and John K on Saturday 19 June 2010. I used the nifty fifty for that one afternoon, then passed it on to John. These are some shots from that session, as we walked up and down the hills of the city. Thanks to the lads for being good tour guides!

the bells of Shandon

Cork chimney

More to come soon, including my favourite shots.

Robbie and John appear to have a thing for swan pictures. So I tried my best at this difficult task.

Nice texture and detail in the cul-de-sac shot.

Here are a few of my favourites from the day.


shadow sign




cracked blue wall




door 369




missing person

This one is odd. There is a reflection of a person but no actual person. And no, I did not clone him out in PP!

Finally, here is my favourite. There is something unsettling and strange about this.

Yep, that's your reflection. So where are you?

I think Robbie's just nipped around the corner but his shadow hasn't caught up with him yet.
